Southbank Marina enjoys a prime position in Scotland's central belt. Situated on the south bank of the Forth and Clyde Canal in Kirkintilloch, the Marina provides berthing for 40 boats in a commercial setting. The town of Kirkintilloch is divided by the canal, and with convenient access to supermarkets, retail units, restaurants, banks and Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre, it is easy to see why the town is known as the Canal Capital of Scotland.
Southbank Marina plays a major role in the annual Kirkintilloch Canal Festival festivities each August.
The site is steeped in canal history including the former boat building yard of PW McGregor Ltd. It was from this site that puffers, scows and a variety of other boats were built and dispatched around the world.
The Marina is conveniently situated whether you are considering a permanent berth, are on a boating holiday looking for overnight, or are travelling along the Forth and Clyde Canal looking to break up the journey.
